Last week, I asked Patch readers on our Facebook page what was good at Seasonings, because I hadn't yet ventured to try the new cafe that opened more than a month ago.
Readers responded, recommending the burger, the eggs and hash browns, the Reuben and the veggie sandwiches, among other menu items.
"The burger is awesome!" Nadine Piccolo said on the Oakland Township Patch Facebook page. "And so is the veggie sandwich if you want something lighter."
I have had a few people recommend the veggie sandwich to me, including Piccolo, and since it's not something I would typically order and I'm trying to eat a bit healthier I decided to opt for some veggies on bread this week.
Seasonings offers customers the choice of putting hummus or cream cheese on the sandwich, and I chose the hummus, which was quite tasty. I was also asked whether I wanted the veggie bread grilled or toasted; I went with toasted. The sandwich was packed with vegetables — peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach leaves and more. Separately, I most likely would not have eaten the veggies because I am not a fan of many of them. But the vegetable medley, combined with the creamy hummus, created a delightful consistency with slightly different doses of flavor — such as juicy and lightly spicy — in every bite.
The veggie sandwich, along with perfectly salty, crispy potato chips and two baby pickles, cost $5.50. Yum!
After my delicious experience at Seasonings, I couldn't help but look at the menu to try to figure out what I would eat next time. I've got my eye on the Goodison Station salad, which combines lettuce with tart apples, toasted walnuts, Michigan dried cherries, purple onions and blue cheese crumbles for $6.50.
